Happy Easter from The Beauty Edge!
Here’s my last minute DIY Easter Mani! I used Essie Love Every Minute as a base coat and layered one coat of Dior Princess over it. For my accent nail, I chose Dior Lime and Nicole by OPI Inner Sparkle for some added glitz.
In an effort to protect the Easter Bunny ;), I thought it would be cute to share a list of companies that do not test on animals. The full list can be found on Peta.org.
- Bare Escentuals
- Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare
- Everyday Minerals
- Physicians Formula
- Tarte Cosmetics
- Urban Decay
- Smashbox Cosmetics
I know I’ve been posting a lot of nail polish reviews lately, but I just couldn’t end the week with out sharing my Easter nail art manicure
Deborah Lippmann’s Staccato polish in Rockin’ Robin is a must for Easter this year. The black glitter within the mint nail polish makes your nails look just like robin eggs – I’m really loving this effect!
I had to add a little bling to my ring fingers so I chose Essie Bond Over Whomever, from their Spring 2013 collection, as the base color. This Essie lacquer is a lovely pastel but yet vibrant lilac color.
Then my manicurist (I’m gonna start calling her my nail artist!) used pink, teal, and yellow nail art polish to make the lines and zigzags. She then sealed it with a layer of Nicole by OPI Inner Sparkle. The result – a gorgeous little glitter egg!
My list of favorite manicures just keeps getting bigger! Happy Easter!!
As you can already tell by now – I just love holiday themed manicures! A blue snowy Christmas eve night is the inspiration behind this glittery manicure. YSL Bleu Cobalt was used from the dark blue base coat. Two different glitter nail polishes were used in this manicure – Essie Luxeffects Set in Stone and Nicole by OPI Sweet Dreams. Set in Stone is a silver glitter polish and it was only used on my ring finger. These rest of my nails are covered with Sweet Dreams, a silver and teal glitter nail polish. My manicurist free-styled the snowflakes using white and silver nail art polish.
